The Bové family loves money.

Especially when Claire Bové, the daughter, adorns herself with the precious metal during the Olympic Games in Tokyo (Japan), thirty-three years after the second place of her mother, Christine, on the occasion of the World Rowing Championships.

The Bovés have humor and continuity in their ideas.

To mark this double family feat, dad Vincent, first coach of the Olympic medalist in the lightweight rowing two-couple, has transformed the garden of the family pavilion located in Vexin.

He stretched out the lawn in the shape of a… medal.

"I thought I would represent the Olympic rings but it was more complicated," says the coach of the nautical club of AS Mantaise (ASM).

I stayed on the medal




Claire Bové's father mowed the lawn in the shape of a medal.


On social networks, Claire shared "the gift" by posting the result of this mowing unlike any other with a message for the author: "Thank you daddy!"

"" I loved the idea, confides the person concerned who discovered the surprise when she woke up, the day after her return to France.

Dad knows that I adore that the lawn is mowed in an original way, it was strong… ”

"I still don't realize"

After the media whirlwind, the Olympic medalist returned to Brittany with her family for a few well-deserved days of rest.

“I fell back a little on earth even if I still do not realize, continues the young rower of 23 years.

My phone keeps ringing and I am impressed with all the congratulatory messages.

This is what makes me realize the significance of this medal.


If she has especially planned to rest with her family and no doubt to go back on horseback, her other passion, the Yvelinoise also already has the next Worlds in her head from October 17 to 24 in Shanghai (China). "There, I will have to equal mom", concludes, all smiles, the one who trains at the federal center of Lyon-Miribel (Rhône) in the company of her older brother Ivan.
